Look for lots of visitors on streets and byways starting this Saturday as the Huskies face the California Bears in Husky Stadium. Kickoff is at 12:30 pm but expect fans to begin gathering for pregame events up to two hours before. On Sunday, September 25, the UW will welcome more than 5,000 entering students, family members and guests for the 28th annual Freshman Convocation in the Alaska Airlines Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion. Doors open at 9:30 am and the ceremony will be followed at noon by the President’s Picnic on Rainier Vista lawn. The new school year begins next week, on September 28.
